j/k, actually traded it in for a Suburban the other night (needed more room). Haven't been the most active poster but done more than my share of lurking, thanks all. <br>

Re: fixed turning radius problem (therf)

IIRC, the turning radius of the Suburban is pretty on-par to the R's - possibly even tighter?<p>Cash for clunkers?
